They are out there, oh yes! Oftentimes, especially in the United States, less so in Canada, we are led to believe that being pro-life comes with a certain package of other political beliefs. That was never the intent of this web site, quite the contrary. The problem is that I am right of centre, and I started this web site, so there’s a “right of centre” bias that comes naturally. In case readers thought I wasn’t aware of that, I am.
Anyways, here’s a news article about a prominent Democrat pro-lifer:
What makes Cassidy different from many pro-life crusaders is his card-carrying liberal credentials with a long history of involvement in Democratic Party campaigns and legal fights to represent the poor and the marginalized. He admits that “there was a point in time when I didn’t think at all about what abortion did to women. And so I was all for it.”
That changed in 1990 when a couple came to him after their child was born with Down syndrome. The doctor had not performed tests which might have tipped the couple off to the baby’s debilitating condition. The couple wanted to sue for “wrongful birth;” meaning, they would have aborted the fetus had they known her condition.
As Blustain tells it: “Cassidy declined the case (asking himself): ‘What would it be like for me and for this little girl if I stood in the well of a courtroom and argued to a jury that they had to give lots of money to her mom and dad because they didn’t get a chance to kill her?'”
And so you see, even left-wingers can tell right from wrong. (That was a joke. I refer you to point A about my right-of-centre bias.)by
